A River in Motion

waterfall structure

The river expresses itself

in many different ways

through the valleys

on any given day


At the mouth

so tender and wide

there is calm here

with wildlife by its side


Going down further

the land begins to narrow

slow soft rapids

having small stones to swallow


Stretching further 

into the land

water falling down 

sounding like a band


Stretching through the seasons

ice has begun to form

beautiful sculptures

remaining till it is warm


Water expresses itself

with a sense of emotion

happiness and anger

depending on the motion


A part of nature

so beautiful to behold

rejoicing in life

precious now as in days of old
